Come Home to Old Orchard I

Old Orchard I is the first homeowners association in the master planned community of Valencia, California.  “OOI” is comprised of 389 single family homes, a beautiful clubhouse facility, 25-yard swimming pool, and a summer swim team for OOI children.  It also features a paseo walkway that runs through the center of the neighborhood to the clubhouse/pool and to the elementary school.

"We looked all over Valencia for the right neighborhood to raise our family and were overwhelmed by the welcoming sense of community we found here in Old Orchard I."
~Kristin Ramirez (OOI Homeowner)

Surrounding Activities

A Note From the Board . . .
 
To say “we live in interesting times“ would be an understatement. Nothing like this has ever happened before, and we hope and pray it never happens again. The news is 24/7 coronavirus and COVID-19 already, so there’s no need to comment on that here.
 
Still, we thought you might want a quick update of what our HOA is doing during the shelter-in-place shutdown. Our Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast, as well as Spring Break at the OOII pool, fell victims to the shutdown. So were some private parties planned for the clubhouse.
 
What about summer at the pool? ... and the Dolphin swim season? Obviously, we’re all optimistic but we really don’t know anything yet. All we can do is to be prepared. Toward that end, our lifeguard staff has been “hired” and will be ready with appropriate certifications plus other training we provide for the safety and security of our members, other residents, and guests.
 
Although the shelter-in-place and social distancing orders remain in place, the activities of the Association continue. Bills must be paid, common area pools and landscaping must be protected and maintained, assessments must be collected, CC&Rs must be enforced, etc. The Board will continue to meet monthly, though this will be done virtually rather than face-to-face, of course. Watch for the agenda on the website and at the clubhouse gate.
 
While the pandemic has horrible health and economic consequences for so many, it has also resulted in many people getting out (keeping proper social distance, of course!) to see new and old friends. The foot (and bike, scooter, skateboard, etc.) traffic on the paseos and bike paths has soared. We see people walking up and down every street throughout the day. And people stop and talk and seem genuinely friendly to each other. Throw in some beautiful spring days and you have a time we’ll never forget.
 
Stay safe and healthy. Follow the guidelines we see and hear every day. Watch out for each other. Keep in contact with friends and family. And make the most of every day during this strangest of times.
